Under UK and EU legislation, a ban will be coming into force on 1 January 2020 that will prevent refrigerants with a global warming potential greater than 2500 being used to service or refill refrigeration or freezer systems, with a refrigerant charge size of 40 tonnes of CO2 equivalent or more.

UK enforcement bodies, the Environment Agency (EA), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Northern Ireland’s Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) have jointly produced and endorsed a leaflet which provides guidance for businesses affected by the F-gas regulation. (Please see attached)

The ban is less than a year away now so it is important the leaflet is shared soon, to ensure small businesses in particular are aware of the implications and the actions they need to take.
